Jitterbit Harmony Design Studio¶
Jitterbit Harmony Design Studio (Design Studio) is Jitterbit's desktop designer for configuring, and testing Jitterbit integration projects. Design Studio is a standalone thick client that can be installed on a Windows or Mac workstation. It simply requires access to the Internet on the workstation or laptop that it runs on.
Another option for project design is to use Cloud Studio, our next-generation project designer featuring a modern and collaborative user experience with a cloud-based UI.
Contact your Customer Success Manager to determine which Studio application best suits your needs for new projects, or to schedule a Readiness Assessment Check for moving existing Design Studio projects to Cloud Studio.
Design Studio is entirely wizard-driven, taking you step by step through the creation of data mappings, connectivity, and transformations. The Design Studio features automatic data mapping and enterprise connectors to make connectivity as easy as possible. Complex data models are supported including Salesforce.com and dynamic schemas, as well as connecting to SOAP API, REST API, and cloud-based APIs such as the Salesforce Bulk API.
The user-friendly graphical interface provides multiple tools for easy definition of complex business processes including predefined Formula Builder functions, enhanced scripting and validation tools, chained operations to be sequentially triggered by events in a prior operation, user-defined local variables that run only in real-time operation of a specific process, and predefined global variables that are defined throughout the entire project.
In the design phase, you can test a query or other operation to make sure all components are valid. Or you can actually run the operation, which displays an operations monitor at the bottom of your screen to report start/end times and progress, number of records processed, and success or failure.
Every element you create in Design Studio is defined in metadata. The metadata is deployed to an environment to be stored, and is then managed by the Management Console.
You can navigate the Design Studio user interface by using these components:
Main Menu: Access most of the functionality provided by the system
Main Toolbar: Fast access to commonly used functionality
Project Tree: Organize and manipulate integration components
Transformation Toolbar: Special functions used when creating transformations
